Marple's Award-winning bands performing together [11 November 2017]
« Reply #1 on: October 01, 2017, 08:39:28 AM »

Award winning Hawk Green (Marple) Band and Marple Brass Band, both recent national brass band finalists, (Two years ago Marple Band were declared 2nd. Section National Champions!) join forces to support St. Paul’s Church, Compstall with their  fundraising effort to stabilise the church's chancel.  In addition, some of the proceeds from the concert enable both bands to maintain their joint bandroom in Marple’s Memorial Park.

The annual concert has in recent years, been extremely  well received by the audience with varying themes. 

Marple is unique within Stockport of having not one, but two accomplished brass bands, both of which provide lively and entertaining concerts supporting charities and worthy causes within the surrounding areas.

Recently in June, Hawk Green Band won prizes in the Saddleworth and Oldham Whit Brass Band competition and more recently in The Blackburn and Darwin Hymn and March Competition in September.  The Marple Band also competed in June in the Tameside Area of the Whit Brass Band Marches competition and did incredibly well, gaining four 1st. place awards, beating bands in higher sections! 

Tickets for the joint concert on Saturday 11th. November 2017 starting at 7.30pm., at St. Paul’s Church in Compstall (near Etherow Park) are available from:-  Doreen Web on 0161 4302779 at £7.50.  (Light refreshments are included)
